Description: Most of these recordings were the works’ first and, at the time, a provincial Bulgarian orchestra was better than nothing at all but now we have the slowly evolving series on cpo to get to know this Danish late Romantic composer better. At mid-price, though, this is a bargain of a set for those into comparing and contrasting. 4 CDs. Romeo Smilkov (piano), Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra; Nayden Todorov. Original 2000-2001 releases.
